These mask drawings represent vessels where spirits can enter with called upon purposes – to protect us from menacing forces, to honor nature and the earth, to ask permission for varying desires, to call upon needed powers, to inspire healing.
Begun in 2013, the Mask series is an evolving project. It is inspired by the headdresses and masks of past cultures and also from the materials and forms of our current globalized one. The obscured characters create a loosely invented history which does not expect to be held as anything other than a fantastical mythology spawned by the intuitive method of my creative process.
My individual interpretations are inspired by my belief that imagery has the power to create change and inspire growth, humor, spirituality, health and life.
